Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:41-46.


John 6:46

_ _ Not that any man hath seen, etc. — Lest they should confound that “hearing and learning of the Father,” to which believers are admitted by divine teaching, with His own immediate access to Him, He here throws in a parenthetical explanation; stating, as explicitly as words could do it, how totally different the two cases were, and that only He who is “from God” hath this naked, immediate access to the Father. (See John 1:18).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 6:46

Not that any one — Must expect him to appear in a visible shape. He who is from or with God — In a more eminent manner than any creature.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 6:46

Not that any man hath seen the Father, (o) save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

(o) If only the Son has seen the Father, then it is only he that can truly teach us and instruct us.
